Game of Thrones took over Comic-Con’s legendary Hall H for an hour-long panel on Friday to discuss last season’s highlights and offer up a tease of what’s to come in Season 7.

The panel included John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei), Conleth Hill (Varys), Faye Marsay (The Waif), Hannah Murray (Gilly), Kristian Nairn (Hodor), Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), along with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Director Miguel Sapochnik  was on hand, too. It’s Always Sunny actor Rob McElhenny moderated the panel.

Sophie Turner took to the mic to throw some shade at Jon Snow. “I’m not so sure she’s so keen on the Iron Throne anymore,” Turner said of Sansa’s ambitions. “I think she thinks [Jon and Sansa] should be King and Queen in the North.  I’m not sure she thinks Jon is capable of running Winterfell and the North. She doesn’t think he has the intellect, the knowledge and the experience that she has, and I concur.”

When the upcoming season’s list of directors was announced last week, it was missing some key names like Miguel Sapochnik who shot “Battle of the Bastards” and the season finale. Sapochnik told the crowd that he’d be very much up for directing an episode in Season 8.

The cast was mostly tight-lipped, but there was plenty of fun with the blooper reel show, along with a brief teaser for Season 7.
